Meet the team


Chairman – Richard Bligh

With over 25 years of industry experience in a variety of senior leadership positions, Richard brings an unrivalled wealth of contacts and knowledge to bear in his role of mentoring and advising the directors of Solution IP.

After joining Gamma Communications in 2004, Richard was instrumental in growing the company from 40 to 900+ staff before its successful flotation in 2016 – helping to transform it from a £40m revenue business to over £250m revenue with a market cap in excess of £750m.

Outside of work, Richard claims to enjoy football although, confusingly, he is a Leeds United fan. He is also a keen, albeit largely ineffectual, golfer.

Managing Director – Patrick Lincoln

Solution IP was founded in 2006 by Patrick, who realised at an early stage that simply offering lines and calls to customers would not fulfil their long-term business needs.

He therefore developed Solution IP to offer a comprehensive range of telephone systems and voice and data solutions.

Patrick is passionate about enabling businesses to grow and experience success via technology, and has spent years building relationships with telecoms communities across the UK.

He is now concentrating on leading Solution IP forward as an expert Business Communications specialist company into a new era of Unified Communications.
